Lévy Gorvy presents Un art autre, an exhibition centred on the innovative reassessments of abstraction that emerged in postwar Paris.
Un art autre, a term meaning ‘Art of another kind’ was coined by legendary art critic and curator Michel Tapié in 1952. The artists involved provided a distinctively European parallel to the American Abstract Expressionist movement. This exhibition offers an insight into the allure of Paris in the 1950s and ’60s: a hub of cross-cultural exchange, intellectual activity, and artistic re-invention. It features works by artists Sam Francis, Joan Mitchell, Jean Paul Riopelle, Pierre Soulages, and Zao Wou-Ki.all images © the gallery and the artist(s)
